I've been praying for a while that Belle will have boldness.
I mean...she already has it in all sorts of areas of her life...backtalking, stubbornness, parenting her brother...you know...all the things I wished she WOULDN'T have boldness in?
I mean boldness to spread the Good News.
She knows kids at her school who don't know God. And she talks about them a lot, and she talks about God a lot.
But never directly to them.
She told me that her little friend (very shy, by the way) Sarah asked her what her shirt said.
Sarah didn't know what she was asking. Here was Belle's response:
"Well, it says 'Pick Jesus'. You see, this is the big G God. He's the One who saves you from your sins. Did you know that people worship sticks and trees and water and even concrete? Yeah, those are the little G gods. Which is actually Satan. So tell me...who would you rather choose...the little G gods who can do nothing for you or the BIG G GOD who created you?"
Sarah: "Well, I would rather the big G God."
Belle: "Good, we'll talk more later."
I guess I need to start praying for boldness for myself!
All Glory and Honor to You, Lord! Thank you for this precious child who you entrusted to me to raise under Your Authority! Continue to draw her and let her know how much I love her, but more importantly, how much YOU love her!
